Announcing The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare! (Chicago,IL)
Introducing an innovative new performance venue coming to Navy Pier.
today: The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare, a forward-thinking new
performance venue slated to hold its first performance during the
Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s 2017-18 Season.
The Yard will be connected to the existing facility, which currently
houses two theaters, through expanded lobbies. The year-round, flexible
venue can be configured in a variety of shapes and sizes with audience
capacities ranging from 150 to 850, defining the audience – artist
relationship to best serve each production.
The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare is integral to Navy Pier's Centennial
Vision, a reimagining of the Midwest's most visited leisure destination
celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The new and renovated
features are designed to expand Navy Pier's impact and audience,
showcasing a vibrant cultural, environmental, educational and
Yard at Chicago Shakespeare, designed by UK-based Charcoalblue and

Shakespeare 400 Chicago is a yearlong international arts
festival in 2016 celebrating the vibrancy, relevance and reach of
Shakespeare. As the world commemorates the four hundred years since
Shakespeare’s death in 1616, Shakespeare 400 Chicago will engage more
than 500,000 Chicagoans and visitors to our City through 850 events.
Spearheaded by Chicago Shakespeare Theater and with leading support from
the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and Pritzker Military
Museum & Library, this quadricentennial celebration is anticipated
to be the world’s largest and most comprehensive celebration of
Shakespeare’s enduring legacy.
